SmartVault, provider of SaaS document storage and sharing solutions, announced today that it was awarded a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the SmartVault Toolbar.
“Receiving this patent is a huge milestone for SmartVault, and we are very excited,” said Eric Pulaski, founder and CEO of SmartVault. “It’s another indicator of how unique our document management Toolbar integration is, and how much this seamless integration adds tremendous value to the end user of that host application.”
The SmartVault Toolbar seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks, allowing for built-in document management and easy attachment of checks, receipts, invoices and other supporting documents directly into QuickBooks. The patent, officially issued October 9, 2012, grants SmartVault the exclusive right to use the patent-recognized technique to integrate with other applications that currently do not have a graphical user interface for document management built-in.
SmartVault is currently working other developers to offer integration of its SmartVault Toolbar with multiple accounting systems and applications.
“Earning this patent is an amazing achievement for the SmartVault team and a proof point that underscores the innovative spirit that is core to our business,” said Pulaski. “We will continue to push the creative boundaries to deliver solutions with real, tangible value to the business end user. It is what our vision is all about.”
